Paint can only be taken to your local household waste recycling centre to be disposed of. It is preferable if it is dry and hardened, although the sites can accept wet paint in the size of paint tin you would normally use for household projects usually up to 5 litres.

No commercial paint or large tins will be accepted.

The tins can be put into the 'household waste' container as there are currently no re-use or recycling facilities for this waste.

If you wish to dispose of any empty metal paint cans they may be put in the metal container for recycling.

To assist the paint drying out, you can leave the lid off the container before bringing it to the centre. You can also add cat litter or sawdust to the paint to assist in the drying process.
